Overdue Update – Monthly Summary- June and July 2017

In the nearly ten years that I’ve been writing this blog, I’ve written at least once every month. Or I had written at least once per month, until June. And then I missed July too. [Insert lame excuses, like travel, being busy at work, running around trying to keep up with Chase, etc. here.] In…

Monthly Summary – May 2017 (and WIEM 50k Race Report)

Monthly Summary – January 2017

The running ennui that I began feeling in December was even stronger in January. I still got out and ran 18 times, which is more frequent than every other day, and I never skipped a planned run, but more often than not getting out the door felt like a chore. Of course, once I was running, it…
